Vintage highlights not to be missed at Cadwell Park!

Tuesday, July 03 2018

Vintage motorsport fans can enjoy a spectacular pageant of retro racing and car displays at the Vintage Motorsport Festival featuring Formula Vintage at Cadwell Park on Sunday 22 July.

Here are some of the must-see attractions on offer, which have been hand-picked by the Vintage Sports-Car Club:

Frazer Nash Race

Frazer Nashes are some of the Vintage Sports-Car Club's core racing competitors. While it's fantastic to see these machines pitted against other marques in mixed grids, spectators can expect a true vision of these wild machines in full force in this single-marque race, expertly co-ordinated by the Frazer Nash Car Club.

Garry Whyte Riley Handicap Race

One of two handicap races on the day, the Garry Whyte Handicap Race will pre-war Rileys take to the track in this tortoise-and-hare-style event. This unusual race starts with the drop of a Union Flag and places cars with the fastest lap time at the back of the grid in a staggered start. The aim of the handicap race is to have all of the cars come across the finish line at the same time. A true spectacle of vintage motorsport, the Garry Whyte Riley Handicap Race is not to be missed!

Intermarque Race

An ever-popular event at Formula Vintage meetings, this race pits historic models against each other in a battle for the fastest marque. To determine the winner, the quickest average speed from the top three competitors of each marque is calculated, with 5mph added to the average speed total per competitor, up to a maximum number of cars per marque. Who will come out top? It's all to play for...

The Trials Demo

As well as the exciting circuit action, the Vintage Sports-Car Club will also be showcasing some fantastic vintage car trialling in the woodlands near the start/finish line footbridge. Trialling is a well-loved motorsport discipline within the VSCC, and involves beautiful pre-war cars being driven up a series of muddy hills in the countryside. Drivers will attempt to climb hill sections in their cars, and will score a number of points based on how far they manage to reach. Drivers will be helped by 'bouncers' - passengers who bounce within the confines of the car to give more traction and grip as the car ascends the section. Spectators can enjoy both vintage cars and motorcycles at this fantastic demonstration over the course of the day. Check out our video here.
